I always install the CD-ROM of Win95/98 to my hard disk then install from there.  However there are many useless files, demo's, etc., that are not needed.  I would like to know what files are needed to have a complete Win98 set of files on my hard disk, including drivers, but not copy the useless stuff.  Are the Cab and driver files the only ones I need?

You only Need to Files located in the WIN98 directory, not any of the Sub Directories under it.

Basically all the Cabs and setup files.

cmcgee,

Let me review this before I get back to you.  I have done only these directorios before, but also needed the drivers file which is outside the Win98 directory.  The other problem when  this is done is that I get the message can not find something.something, please locate it.  So if I did only the Win98 and Drivers directories, you think this would be all?

Yes, you were exactly correct.  Plus if you add the "drivers" folder to the alternate directory, you then have all the drives available.  You have to be sure you copy all of them though to have a thorough set.

Thanks
